2013 BMW 640i N55 six cylinder powered Gran Coupe to sport a $76,895 base price - Too high?
BMW made a wise decision to include a six cylinder model in the Gran Coupe lineup. The only real competition for it is the Audi A7 and Porsche Panamera V6. The Panamera starts at $75,200 but does not offer a turbocharged powerplant. The Audi A7 3.0 TFSI six cylinder on the other hand starts at $60,125. The BMW price starts to look bad once on considers a CLS550 with a twin turbo V8 starts at $71,300 meaning you can get the V8 Benz for less than the six cylinder BMW.
The entire pricing of the F12/F13 6 Series generation is very high making for a model sure to experience large depreciation as it seems to be overpriced.

I don't know the front of the 6 does look very sexy. Not sure if I like the CLS over the 6...

I might be speaking out of context, but why does it seem that BMW is watering down their product line? I know that they are trying to appeal to the market but are they not loosing touch with what makes BMW great and keeps the enthusiasts true to the brand?
